Dr. Joseph K. Young
All eye examinations whether they are for children, adults or senior adults, are comprehensive using advanced optometric techniques resulting from 'spot on' refractions to checking for any ocular anomaly or disease.
A child and their eye exams must be treated differently than adults. Dr. Young will assess for ocular problems that can impact learning and development among other child related testing.
This is the time when Dr. Young is especially concerned with Senior age related eye issues. He will thoroughly evaluate for conditions such as Age Related Macular Degeneration, Cataracts, Dry Eye Syndrome, Glaucoma, Blephoroptosis (droopy eye lid), etc.
If you fall into this category, you can't see quite as clearly as they used to. For you, Dr. Young may prescribe monovision, or bifocals to compensate for reading and distance, or trifocals to compensate for reading, computer vision and distance. Progressives may also be prescribed or the new advanced, Bifocal Contacts.
Dr. Young specializes in fitting for all types of patients - even if you have been told that you are not a good candidate, or, you just feel that your vision with your contacts could be better.
Dr. Young is also known for his superb diagnostic skills and discovering the root cause of vision issues. Even if you get a 'clean bill of health', it is comforting to know that you received it from Dr. Young.
